Cheat Codes is back with a bang today as they release their official debut full-length Hellraisers Pt. 1. The album is released as the first part of their wildly anticipated three-part debut album series.
Cheat Codes first gained critical acclaim after their track "No Promises" with none other than Demi Lovato. With vibrant and upbeat tunes and catchy lyrics, the track was an instant hit from the moment it was released. Cheat Codes have collaborated with some of the biggest names in current music from Liam Payne, Kim Petras, Wiz Khalifa, and Sofía Reyes, Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith to name a few.
Their brand-new album Hellraisers Pt.1 features the same energy coupled with vibrant background and thoroughly well-written lyrics. The album falls into the genre of dance-pop, but it is certainly not your average pop music. Cheat Codes intricately crafts bold production, which features highs and lows that will coerce you to move your hips to the colorful beat.
The production featured in many of the songs also adds an interesting touch. "Lean on Me" featuring Tinashe brings an intriguing combination of pop with her strong vocals giving the track an extra boost of energy. The diverse elements of the song brings out the true emotions, as Tinashe and Cheat Codes' Trevor Dahl bring a harmonious, intertwined set of vocals into the mix.
"On My Life," is skillfully composed and filled with melodic overtones that share their very distinct personal style. The tracks flow so seamlessly and takes you into a bright, colorful trance that carries throughout the record.
The name of the album was the nickname given to the group by their late manager, Michael Theanne, who passed away just over a year ago. The album itself has three parts - each part has a distinct sound influenced by each member; from pop to hip hop to dance. Hellraisers Pt. 1 showcases the diversity of the group, as they gear up for additional releases this year.
